OK so I'm a budget hound. I can't afford $35/pound diver scallops. I live in the N Miami Beach area. I saw previously frozen, dry pack, kinda small, but still sea scallops not bay scallops at my local Publix seafood display case. $17.00 pound. No tryphosphates added..so they say but hey had that way too white look to them.
Anybody have any last minute suggestions. I have no Costco card so I don't know their deals. I do know Whole Foods, Epicure and Fresh Market are usually way overpriced. Although I saw asparagus ( Mexican ) for $1.98/Pound.
I don't mind getting IQF and defrosting them in the fridge myself. I don't mind a 2 pound bag as I know she has other Scallop recipes we can make later. I also don't mind a minor road trip if I have to.
I'm thinking a simple sear but if anybody has any can't miss scallop recipes let me know. I will peruse the recipe links.
thanks in advance for keeping me off the couch
